Give it all away to charity. But first I'd have to start my own charity. :dyinglaughing:

If i won the Lottomax of 50 mil, i would donate 10 mil to Crossroads treatment centre, then another 10 mil to the B.P.O.E. (The Elks) in my fathers name, as he was grand ruler at one time, helped alot of people. I would then buy a store for kids who need sports equipment as it is pretty expensive, and give it to them for free, as long as the family passes a means test. 1 mil would go to the local food banks, nothing for the family as they have all passed on.

I'd help out family, pay off debts, build a house (with greenhouse attached). I'd travel, invest, and put the rat race behind me. I'd help certain charities but not all. I'd do it anonymously because I'd hate to have every man and his dog begging for their charity as well . . .
I haven't failed until I quit.

I'd open Captain Awesome's Center For Kids Who Can't Read Good (and who wanna learn to do other stuff good too).

I would run as fast as I can to the magazine store and buy a copy
of Robb Report - the magazine for millionaires. then I would look
through the sports car section, and go buy one of these>>>


then I'd drive it around for a few days until I was bored. Then probably go travelling somewhere.
Ukraine is broke, and undertook a war on that portion of the country that provided 30% of GDP. Now a draft, for an army, for a war, for a government that will - get this - implement IMF/EU *austerity*.
